What is Child, Youth and Family Engagement?

We work with children and young people to build skills and confidence to achieve the things they want in their life.

Through one-on-one support, we help create and maintain good relationships with family, friends and people in school or the community, and secure meaningful work or learning.

Peer groups are also available to participate in and can help people focus on building self-esteem and resilience, developing constructive communication skills, or setting goals.

We also support a person’s family so that they can assist their child in their mental health and wellbeing goals, including information, referral and education.
